When Dominick` Del Giudice, a sophomore at Palo was asked before the Super Bowl who he thought would win, he predicted that “the Chiefs are winning the Super Bowl.” Del Giudice also added “Patrick Mahomes is a great leader and he leads the offense really well. Overall the Chiefs work great as a team.”
Dominic was right, as Patrick Mahomes was named the MVP of the Super Bowl as he helped lead the Chiefs to a 31-20 lead to win against the 49ers. Although Maholmes was struggling, as he gave away two interceptions, he still held himself together to help his team. He overall had some impressive stats.
Maholmes had 286 passing yards, 29 rushing yards, a score on the ground, and two passing touchdowns. That’s impressive, especially for the young man at just 24 years old. He also became the youngest player to win MVP in the Super Bowl.
It wasn’t just Maholmes that had an impressive game, the Chiefs overall had a good game with an amazing late comeback. The chiefs fell behind in the end of the second quarter losing 13-10. Third quarter just went downhill for the Chiefs as the 49ers took the lead 20-10.
